Unforgettable lessons of education

I have participated in Edge Hill’s international summer camp. Since all of the students from my school major in education, we took lingual classes and lectures about English education. Although it was a short period, we could feel that Mr.Fraser did his best to give as much as he could. It was able to understand English educational curriculum and culture.
Also the visits to schools were nice. Especially the very first one was great with the head teacher’s explanation. They were all public schools thus it could broaden points of view if it is able to visit private schools and compare the two kinds of schools.

Splendid experience

With going pit-a-pat heart, I took on an airplane. The flight was little bit tired. But it was good. When we arrived at the Manchester International Airport , the staffs from The Edge Hill University were waited for us. So we could arrived the campus comfortable and safely. Also when we came our accommodation, the staffs explained all the things and there was a lot of equipments for our life. The better thing was to provide towels and roll papers. We don’t have to get or buy these things. So first impression was positive.
The campus is so huge. And facilities are really good. Also obviously beautiful!
Professors, tutors and the other people are so kind and generous. And improving our English skills was so helpful. I really satisfied this course.
If I can get a chance again here, I’ll certainly comeback The Edge Hill University! I recommend anyone who want to go university in U.K.

Amazing experience

From the Republic of Korea to the United Kingdom was very tired trip...It took almost a day! However when we arrived at the Manchester International Airport, the staffs from the university were waiting for us! So we were able to go to the campus very easily with the bus they prepared for us! When we arrived, there were some breads, cereal, coffee, tea, milk and butter in the accommodation for us! Thx again!
Oh, and you know what? Before we even depart from Korea, the university sent us lots of information about the campus and the UK!
The service of the university is really awesome. When we arrived at the first time, there were a little bit of problem with out accommodation, however the campus quickly check everything and made everything work properly!
The accommodation is really marvelous! It's like a hotel! All the students have own bathroom with toilet! And of course it's single occupancy. You know what? Even there is a TV in your ROOM! And we also have kitchen in each floor with oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer!
The campus is very huge and it's very beautiful! There is a pub, subway, cafeteria just everything are in the campus.
Prof, tutors and the other staffs are just too kind and awesome! They are all master of English. Whatever I ask to them, they just know anything about English!
And I really love how they teach us, it's not just writhing and reading! We use our listening and speaking skills with our classmates to improve our speaking! So there are lots of presentation but do not worry! It's just kinda speaking in front of the class, and I love it!
If I'm able to, I hope I want to stay in the Edge Hill University! One day, I hope I'll be back to the campus!
I'm pretty sure the Edge Hill University is the best university where I can study English in the UK no! In the world!
